    Ohhhh ok so if I do get a pci-sata card it has to have a silicon chipset right (cuz i have hitachi 360).

    Now i understand. Ive been reading the forum about chipset this and chipset that but didnt know exactly which chipset was being talked about. Just to confirm "silicon" is the actual type of chip right?
    Thank you

    This card is for Samsung drives and Hitachi 0078FK and 0079FK. I haven't tested with any other Hitachi drives but it *should* work for all other versions of the Hitachi drive.

    Here's the card I reccommend for all Hitachi drives other than the 78,79.

    I've personally bought my SIL from this guy on ebay and I can pretty much assure you if you offer $15 you can get this card for $25 shipped. I recieved my card 2 days after I paid him.

    Hope these links help you guys.
